Magical Fall Entrance

I have always loved using natural elements, like cornstalks and pumpkins, in my fall decor. This season is no exception. I wanted to do cost-effective, budget-friendly decorations that are easy to replicate but still make a statement.


Read on below for the process:


STEP ONE:


I went to Home Depot and purchased two plastic buckets and some Quikrete cement.


STEP TWO:


I foraged through the property for sticks and vines that I thought were the right size and shape for the archway. Next, I mixed up the Quikrete and cemented the sticks into each bucket.


STEP THREE:


Once I arranged the sticks in an arched shape, I screwed the sticks together, and covered the arrangement with vines and twinkle lights.


I followed the same process for the garden entrance. The garden, however, had a preexisting archway, so I went straight to step three: decorating!


To decorate the garden archway, I placed cornstalks on either side of the archway and hung my Dollar Tree terra cotta pumpkins. I also added Christmas candles to give the garden area a nice ambience.


The finished product turned out even better than I had envisioned!


Here is the house archway:
